Everyone can enjoy the ice cream made in the creamery! Billings Farm is easy to... More

We spent a couple of hours walking around this beautiful property on a recent trip to Woodstock. It's close enough to town to walk, but it also has plenty of parking, if you feel like driving. The main building had some cool exhibits about the farm and 19th/20th century farm life, and a good 30-minute video about the farm's history... More

Picturesque setting just a stones throw from downtown Woodstock, VT. Bring the whole family for a few hours of education about dairy cows and draft horses. We were here on our honeymoon 30 years ago and it has only got better with age. Highly recommended.

I am deeply impressed by the experience, which is characterized by informative display, first hands touch on stocks like cows, sheeps as well as the barns. Watched how the sheep is sheared, and everyone enjoy the performance. Also gets a chance to see how cows eats grass, although it comes strong smell! The owners original home is informative and eye...

I brought my girls on the Saturday before Easter and it was baby animal day. We saw new born lambs, chickens, ducks, calves and pet adult milking cows. It was nice to have such informative staff on hand to teach us. The horse drawn carriage (Tom and Jerry were the draft horses) was no extra charge so we went twice.... More

We visited the Billings Farm and Museum and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We stayed at the Woodstock Inn and our stay allowed us free access to Billings. The horse drawn carriage ride was fun with the beautiful horses, Tom and Jerry pulling us. The wool blankets in the sleigh helped keep us warm on the very cold day. The farm... More

The farm is a great place to visit with city kids. They can learn a great deal about animals and farms.

Had a complimentary horse drawn sleigh ride at the farm because we were staying at the Woodstock Inn. Blue skies, Tom and Jerry are beautiful horses...felt like I was living in a painting. Free hot apple cider and samples of presidential favorite cookies. We'll be back in the summer to explore more if the farm!
